One year ago, Alexander Litvinenko was murdered in London on the orders of Vladimir Putin. The motive to this crime is obvious: he knew too much and, worse still, he tried to let the public know too much.
What were those dark secrets he uncovered? What were the dangers he wanted to warn us about?
Russian Mafia and international terrorism, including FSB links to Al Queda; political prisoners and political assassinations, including preparations to murder the author; FSB agents in key positions in the East and in the West, including the sensational accusations against Romano Prodi; - such is the incomplete list of subjects covered in Alexander Litvinenko's Allegations.
Today, as the Kremlin wages a new Cold War on the rest of the world, it is essential for us to know how that regime works, what are its strengths and weaknesses, and how it can be destroyed. Alexander Litvinenko knew the answers to that. Alas, he cannot fight alongside us anymore. But the invaluable heritage of his knowledge still can help us in the difficult times ahead.
